Great product! I bought this as my very first MAC product ever, and I gotta say that I'm very impressed. Great coverage with one pump all over my face, and doesn't make me look cakey or too fake. With primer and setting spray (which I use for all foundation due to my super oily skin), lasts all day without transferring. I love that it's a neutral undertone but doesn't look out of place on my Asian skin (I'm pretty yellow for an Asian as well). Easy to blend and doesn't dry too fast so I can work with it without rushing.
I usually use a very dense, flat brush to blend this. Doesn't accentuate pores, covers well--what more could I ask for? Other than lower prices, I suppose, but I'd say it's worth the money.

I love love LOVE this! It's very light and it looks very natural, you can't even tell that I'm wearing foundation! I got compliments on my skin, something that has never happened before! I have rosacea so my skin is red most of the time (Which is SO embarrassing!) and when I purchased this it completely covered up the red, which gave me a lot more confidence in myself, because I felt like everyone would always think I was embarrassed or something because my face would always be red, even if I was completely calm. Anyways, this is not cakey at all, and I also have really sensitive skin, and this didn't really break me out... you just have to make sure you wash it all off before you go to bed!

Even thought I have just recently purchased a new foundation, I have used this in the past and I have to say this was the best color match for me, ( am #5 in this formula) bar none. Not drying or caking, no pimple when it was new to announce it/s arrival when I first started using it. I personally found it a bit heavy although I am partial to ultra sheer foundations or tinted moisturizers. I think this offers a lot to women who prefer a more medium- heavy foundations and it can be sheered out nicely with moisturizer.

I have been a fan of MAC cosmetics before I was even allowed to wear them! My first purchase was the MAC Pro Longwear foundation (full coverage), I was in love! However, I didn't know much about makeup then and could not realize that the color was off from my neck and the "full coverage" look just gave me a cakey and "too much makeup" look to my skin. I have always been told that I don't need a lot of makeup, my skin is not as bad as I think (we are always our worst critics). I've never tried any other buildable (or light to medium coverage) foundations so my excitement for this may just be out of inexperience but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the coverage this gives. It's so light on my skin and looks so natural. People are always looking to wonder if I have on makeup or not, my skin still looks FLAWLESS just without any product on it. I love that the 8.5 matches my skin tone completely (I was a NW45 or NW46 in Pro Longwear) and I use the MAC 187 Foundation brush and "buff" the foundation into my skin for a flawless, airbrush look. Definitely recommending this to anyone that listens and definitely buying again!

This is my favorite foundation so far! Although the coverage is light-medium depending on method of application, I feel like this foundation really does a lot to match my skin tone, which is not an easy feat (I'm of east indian descent, but much lighter than most other indians). One tip: when applying this foundation in layers, wait a few seconds in between to allow it to dry and oxidize. Like all my foundations, I apply this with a stippling brush. As long as you properly remove this foundation, it should not cause break outs. I mix mine with bb cream to get my desired color and consistency.

For quite a while I have been wanting to try a MAC foundation. I have been wanting to try a name brand and reliable foundation. I have one MAC blush and love it so much since it's so pigmented, so I was hoping that a MAC foundation would cover my acne scars. I do have sensitive, dry skin so I tested this foundation at a MAC counter and was matched as a 5.0 (this foundation goes from 1.0 to, I believe, 10.0. As for what this shade is around? I'm an NC35). Anyway, I loved it! It was pigmented and didn't dry my skin! Plus, it did not break me out! It has a twist and pump style dispenser and you only need one pump (even that can be too much!). Now, as much as I like this foundation, I also found that I don't LOVE this foundation. It tends to oxidize and become quite dry/cakey looking throughout the day (even though it did not feel like it). You need to bring this foundation down the neck because once it oxidizes, you can tell where your foundation is. With that being said, I was satified enough with this foundation; however, I am thinking of trying other MAC foundations and seeing what my thoughts are of them. So, I will be repurchasing another MAC foundation; I just won't be repurchasing a MatchMaster foundation any time soon.

I bought this some time ago and have been using this regularly. I like that it looks natural, and covers most un-evenness pretty well. However, it doesn't last that long on me with my oily, rosacea-prone face. Which is why I probably won't buy it again with the myriad of other formulas out there. I do love though that someone commented that I didn't look like I had anything on when I wore this.

I love this foundation, mostly because it doesn't break me out! And I think it looks really natural on the skin. I blend it in a lot and get a really nice finish, this is also good mixed in with moisturiser.

I love how well the foundation matches my skin, love how easy it is to blend with my foundation brush (or fingers) and its never made me break out like many of the other foundations i have tried over the years. The only reason i didn't give it a 5 is because it doesn't last as long as id like it to id say about 7-8 hrs into my day it starts to really kind of wear off. I don't use a primer though. I use my mineralize pressed finishing powder which leaved my skin looking super smooth with a matte finish ( just the way i like it!) i gave the packaging a 4 because i like it... but its kind of bulky. Would reccomend to someone who is looking for medium coverage ( it is buildable though!)

This was my first MAC foundation and it did not disappoint! Doesn't break me out and lasts all day. No funny smell either. I love the pump applicator too. One pump does my whole face, and I've had it a year and still have half the bottle left. So even though it might seem expensive, it has lasted me a long time. Granted I don't wear a full face of makeup every day, but I'd say at least 3-4 data a week.

Really ladies? I'm sorry to say that this product is not amazing, at ALL. I really really wanted to love this.
First off, one of my girlfriends brought it with her to Vegas & I forgot my foundation so I ended up using hers..at that time, I fell in love. I wore it both days that weekend and it was great..I thought. Maybe it was just the alcohol..
SO I came back to Cali (Vegas was even hotter than Cali at the time) and decided to buy the foundation..oh my god, AWFUL. I tried it numerous times with every kind of application. Primer & no primer, fingers, beauty blender, stippling brush, everything..At first, the foundation does look flawless and gives you nice coverage but a few hours in, I was a hot oily mess and it oxidizes like crazy! Keep in mind, I have combination skin..a little bit dryer than oily and I was an oil slick!! It felt like i was wearing a pound of makeup on my face by the end of the day and I HATE the feeling of makeup on my skin..to top it all off, it did break me out! I had such high hopes!
I'm currently using MAC Prolong Wear Foundation & I truly am in love! doesn't feel like anything is on my face and it keeps me oil free! Flawless! :)

I am really sad to say i had to let this foundation go.......because i really do love its finish and texture and mos defiantly its coverage....
pros: awesome packaging , full coverage,last allllll day with caking up etc
cons:makes my dry flaky skin look and dryer and peeling textured
breaks me out after an hour of being on
Even though ive had problems with this foundation ive went back to it over and over again but its time to burry it because its not worth harming my skin.

I have very sensitive skin and I'm very pale, so I've always had trouble finding foundations suited for me. They were either too dark for my skin, or I broke out from using them. For me, personally, Matchmaster is the best foundation ever. I'm shade 1, and it matches my skin tone exactly. I have mild acne to begin with, but this product has not made it any worse. In fact, I've noticed that my face has been clearing up a little bit since using Matchmaster so I don't know if there's something in the ingredients that my skin is have a good reaction to or what, but that's a plus. Aside from that, it also has very decent coverage. It doesn't cause any blemishes to stand out more and in fact, it covers them up. I'm very impressed with this product and it's my new go-to foundation. My only complaint is that yes, the price is a little steep (at least for me, because I usually use drugstore brands) at $33.00, but to me, with the luck I've had with it, it's worth it. I definitely recommend giving this product a try!
UPDATE: I was reading other reviews on this product and noticed that a lot of people with dry skin had problems with this product. I do not have dry skin, and not every product is great for every skin type. However if you have combination - oily skin, this product is amazing!

A MAC artist tried this on me yesterday when I stopped by my local MAC store. I find it to be of better quality than most drugstore foundations but not as lovely as my Lancome Teint Ultra Idole. It has medium, buildable coverage; I would need a concealer to help cover up my acne scars if I wanted my skin to look flawless. The finish of this foundation is pretty matte, but it wasn't obvious that I had it on (unless you looked at me up close). I usually wear either NW15 or NW20 in MAC foundations and found shade 1.0 of this foundation to be a little too light for me (the shades of this foundation run from 1.0 - 10 with some half shades included). If you're in my shade range you might benefit from trying 1.5. This product has good lasting power when set with a power, but it did dry me out a bit (and I have oily skin). I did not purchase this foundation and probably never will. Lancome still makes my HG foundation.

This foundation is MEH. I have a normal/combination skin type. I can get really oily on my T-zone and really dry on my cheeks & chin. I'm not always oily nor am I always dry, it just depends on how my skin is feeling. I also have very acne prone skin. I found that with this foundation, it doesn't really MELT into my skin neither does it set well, even when I go over it with my coty airspun loose powder, it somehow tends to setů tacky. It sort of clings on to my dry patches and does NOT look natural at all. Especially under broad daylight. Another thing, it photographs HORRIBLY. It has spf 15 in it? And it really shows in pictures. It's my first & last MAC foundation, hah.

I'm usually not a big fan of MAC fdtn even though it's quite popular. I decided to get a sample of this since I never buy a full bottle of any brand of foundation unless i was absolutely sure of it. At first I was a bit hesitant to buy it but since I knew I could return it just in case I changed my mind I went ahead anyway.
I got the shade 6.0 as this was the best match. I have combination/oily skin but I love the finish of this. I would say that this is a light to medium coverage. I do set it with a loose powder otherwise I will get oily easily, It does last for a good 8 hrs but I do have to blot in 4 hrs. It does oxidize a little bit but as long as you start to get oily and start blotting it's fine.
I use my 187 Kabuki brush and this is easy to spread on the face. I use NARS Pro Prime as my primer. It has a liquid to powder finish. I should mention that it looks fine in pictures. I did not find that it gave me a ghost face in pictures at least with an iphone. I still have to test it out with a different camera in different lighting and see but for now I will continue to use the foundation.

This foundation is ok.It's very heavy (duhh..MAC).The staying power is good and the coverage is good and you can build it up.My personal problem is that I have very fair skin so its soo heavy I turn orange lol...

I used a foundation from MAC a year or so ago and I hated it. It felt thick but oily and was much to orange on my skin. After some research I had decided to try this one out. When I went to the store I tried the lightest shade on my hand and it matched perfectly. So I applied it to my face, and, to my surprise, it was perfect! I don't have to blend at my jawline even. Seamless colour match for me. It does have a little bit of a paint like smell but I love it. It applies evenly and covers my red pigmentation without getting rid of some of the small freckles and such I have. Medium coverage. A little expensive but much more affordable than the other route I was thinking of going. I LOVE this foundation.

I've been wearing MAC skin foundations and powders for probably 10 years, and I have to say that while the color I got with this particular product didn't match me perfectly, I did like the weight of the coverage over my acne prone skin, and the finish.
Now here's the bad-- recently I switched over to a new foundation (Benefit's Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation) and discovered, much to my shock, that off of my MAC skin regimen-- my skin, for the first time in a decade, cleared up. Seriously. It really -WAS- MAC products that were breaking me out. So, while I know there are those who will always swear there are other reasons for breakouts on MAC products-- for all my girls having trouble kicking their bad skin and who've never abandoned their MAC foundations and powders, I say-- give it a try for a month and you might see a big change.

Absolutely love this product. Accurate colour range, velvet to the touch on your skin and not a bad price for a foundation that works for me. Previously I tried studio fix but found the colours either too yellow or too orange. This is my all time foundation. Highly recommend.
Ive been using this foundation for around 3 months and i love it. I switch between this and MAC pro longwear because i dont want my matchmaster to run out. Its lasted me since november and i have just purchased my second bottle. I just love this! Please dont hesitate to try. You wont be disappointed
